Equality and Diversity Scheme
The Education Village Academy Trust has developed a set of objectives to promote Race, Gender and Disability equality in all its academies, meeting the current statutory duties in these areas. However, it goes beyond these strands to include sexual orientation, religion or belief, and any aspect which has the potential to discriminate against or to devalue any individuals within our community such as against those with special educational needs or potential language barriers. The unique nature of The Education Village as home to Darlington’s only special school provides a tremendous opportunity for all three schools to celebrate difference and achievement by all. We are further committed to the development of cohesive communities both within our physical boundaries and within our local, national and global environments.

Equality and Diversity Information and Objectives

More Able and Talented
We plan our teaching and learning so that each child can aspire to the highest level of personal achievement. We recognise and support the needs of those children in the Village who have been identified as ‘more able’ and/or ‘talented’ both within the classroom and beyond to ensure they reach their full potential. 

Disability Discrimination 

The Education Village Academy Trust fully supports the Disability Discrimination Acts regarding the elimination of unlawful discrimination and harassment of disabled persons, the promotion of equality, the need to take account of disabilities, the promotion of positive attitudes towards disabled persons and the need to encourage participation by disabled persons.

Accessibility Policy

The Trust Accessibility Policy sets out what it is doing to improve aspects of the physical environment and other resources so that disabled pupils can take full advantage of the education and associated opportunities provided.  The policy refers to individuals who are disabled in a wide sense, including those with special educational needs.
